Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen, Steven Piazza, a current Gade 12 student at Oak Bay High and carver Clarence Dick celebrate during the fundraiser March 27 at The Oaks.

Sno’uyutth spreads good energy

First Nations Night at The Oaks to benefit the Sno’uyutth project raised more than $3,000.

Sno’uyutth means “spreading good energy” and the welcome pole planned for Oak Bay High is well on the way toward doing that already with the second in a series of benefit concerts held last weekend.

First Nations Night at The Oaks to benefit the Sno’uyutth project raised more than $3,000.

The Community Association of Oak Bay hopes to raise the Butch Dick-designed welcome pole this fall at Oak Bay High. The Songhees master designed the 20-foot totem and his son, carver Clarence Dick, will lead the team carving the artwork.

The association has raised about $30,000 of the estimated $76,000 needed.

Private donations of cheques over $50 can be made payable to The Rotary Club of Oak Bay Foundation to receive a tax receipt. Send cheques to Community Association of Oak Bay 138-2017A Cadboro Bay Rd. Victoria, BC V8R 5G4.

The next benefit concert is Jazz Night at The Oaks on Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m. featuring jazz vocalist Joe Coughlin.
